    Soft vise jaws for luthery

    Hi,
    Here is an idea I saw somewhere on the Web, I can't say exactly from whom it is.
    It is a set of soft jaws to be installed on a heavy duty vise for holding delicate wood and non parallel pieces :









    I have an article on my site for that :
    La Belle Note - Soft vise jaws for the luthier

    This gives me a new idea for creating special purpose "soft" jaws and the big springs are what I needed to make it work. Thanks for sharing the photos.

    Thanks for sharing this idea, Christophe. Gave me an idea for soft and non-marring vise jaws.

    Nice approach. Instead of mounting the soft jaws to the vise jaws the jaws straddle the movable jaw shaft. Quick and easy install.
